This Carbon nanotube based structure was formed on Silicon dioxide substrate using a chemical vapor deposition method. The peeled rectangular sections along the perimeter of the cylindrical structure arise from a radially symmetric tensile field, which exceeds the van der Waals bond strength between Carbon nanotube strands.
